FCC and Your Listening Choices

Inspired by a particularly gross talk show episode the FCC is looking to envigorate their efforts “to crackdown on indecency in broadcasting“:

The agency not only warned Infinity that it might lose its license if it does not clean up its act, but announced that any broadcaster who runs afoul of the vague indecency standard will face “strong enforcement actions, including the potential initiation of revocation proceedings.”

Given apparent ongoing congressional intent to oversee our reading and listening habits I suspect we will not be able to look to congress to properly slap the FCC as it has done regarding the media ownership issue. So this FCC behaviour is likely to end up in the courts hopefully it will be tossed out with the trash.
